We will probably add a little more color to the sticlker sheet and a few more sticklers. That is just the first design...

Pics from a money race this past weekend!

Had a lot of southeasts top talent running. OCM TQ'd and won the 30 minute a main leading start to finish!

Buggy was great and really fast, I am very happy as this was def. not a easy field!

Ryan Lopez of Team XRAY finished 2nd with Shane ogden in 3rd.... who won?alan?

That's the wrong sheet!!! That looks like the sheet from Dothan or T-Bird.

ABURTON,

Whats your experience with Radical .21 engines for a buggy?
Been thinking about trying one. Probably 621T?
Have run:
C.M.B.
O.S.
R.B.
Werks

Also what pipe might you recommend other than the Radical pipe?
Plug recommendations?
Are they standard or turbo type?

Looking at Shane's setup, can I ask what the track conditions are like. I was wandering if you guys are racing indoors with high grip levels??
The tracks that we run on are very loose.

I have watched both Alan Burton and Shane keller run OCM buggies with Radical 621 P or T's and had great success with them. There are also alot of other people here in Alabama running the radicals and everyone seems to really like them. They have a smoth linear powerband, no peaky power. As most of the tracks in this area are slick during the day and then some of then come around at night after running all day.

As for Kellers setup it is definately not indoors, most of our tracks are good ole southern red clay, that has a layer of dust until the sun goes down and then if we get lucky they tend to form a decent groove, nothing spectacular.
This weekend race even had some sand in it and when wet it would become slick, but the OCM's all seemed to do real well. When i drove Shanes buggy i was able to really push the buggy in the tight turns and make up some time i lost as i am very inexperienced in 8th scale racing. I feel as though Shanes setup on an OCM will be easy to drive.

SHADY!!!! Thanks alot man.

As Shady said, nothing around here is indoor....sometimes in the daytime it gets so dusty you have a hard time seeing. It may help if you run simular tires. When it's really, really dry without much grip in the track.....I will run a Panther K2 Super Soft or sometimes an M3 Bowtie.

I also did forget to put my diff oil setup in my setup post.......5-5-1

radicals are great engines....easy to break in, great power, long life, just a good package. The down fall to this point has been keeping them in Maybe that's a good thing.....

Kev....

Not sure what the differences are between our tracks and yours but what setup do you use? Let me look at it.

Our tracks are low traction maybe medium...

We ran on one super high bite blugroove track and I went a little higer on sway bars but left all else the same. We had the TQ buggy that day as well against some top southeast names. I'm pretty luck to have top caliber drivers to race with often...

Shanes setup felt slow but was not. It did not have a ton of steer exp off but it kept you stable...

Hi guys.... looks like I am going to be putting the MBX-5R on the shelf for awhile and try out the OCM. Anyone on the west coast racing one? I am going to miss the Kyosho race at REV, but will be making most of the Toys 4 Tots races at Full Throttle hobby and Central Valley RC.... I hope to get the OCM bug going here.... couple of our other guys want to try them after I get mine going. Anything I need to do or upgrade right off the bat? Lightened top plate? Anybody weigh theirs compared to a 5R? Are the shock lengths the same? I want to run SBB for the tracks out here. Thanks in advance....
